Here's Gretel's Wobbler classroom holding all the new blanket bags that Grandma Liz made for them. These colorful bags are designed to hold naptime blankets, saving thousands of plastic bags from the landfill over the years! Teachers Linda and Mary Louise are thrilled with them, and the kids had fun posing for pictures with them. Thanks Grandma Liz!

For President's Day weekend Casey and I were lucky enough to have a few days just for the two of us. Gretel and Alistair stayed with their Grandma Liz and Grandpa Larry for a few nights while we made off for their beach cabin in Florence. At first we didn't know what to do with ourselves, but managed to fill our time with mushroom hunting, a walk on the beach, some coastal exploring, eating out in a restaurant or two, and even going to a movie! Here are some pictures from our getaway weekend.

Gretel and her mother got to take a trip to visit Auntie Sally and Uncle Roger in Astoria recently, and also circled back through Cannon Beach to see Barbara and Rainmar. It was a whirlwind trip but so nice to catch up a bit with these folks.
We met a very friendly stray dog on the beach, then Gretel proceeded to follow it home until she was quite far away from us. Who knows how far she would have gone if it weren't for taking a tumble and needing someone to dust her off?!
